Official Team Fortress 2 Game Nights (PC)

Also a short clip. Me playing soldier.

Tonight was my first time playing since HLstatsX got added again. I figure I'll try making some replays.

Is there a way to skip forward in the replay editor? All I can seem to do is fast forward.

3 axestabs:

5 axestabs and a shotgun, because it's really hard to get an axe kill on another pyro (and there's a reflect kill at the top during the fast-forward, but I still suck at setting up camera angles in replays):

Any cinematography recommendations are welcome.

The best part of that last replay was the beginning to about 7 seconds. CABER!!!!

Aww ...a perfectly good comment ruined by miserable spam.

lol yeah, I checked and he isn't showing on the stats even. I've notified Certis.

I see this as an unfortunate argument that ubers should be poof-proof.

If you watch closely at the start you may catch there were 2 cloaked spies on the point "helping" to cap.

more caber spam and a run in with Brian. As always best watched in 720p and inbiggind.

Ha, the flames from my hat are floating in mid air in that first vid.

It's been doing that a lot lately. I think one of the more recent updates screwed something up with the unusual flame effect.

Pretty sure I'm the medic in that one. One less uber flash and I might still have been alive....

Haha!

For no reason at all, I thought it would be awesome to recreate the introduction to A Clockwork Orange in Source Film Maker, starring the Scout suitably attired in a bowler hat and drinking Mad Milk.

Then I remembered that everything anyone can ever possibly think about TF2 has already been done.

And I was right.

problems?

Why do I even have 1 caber kill, I don't even remember equipping the weapon, I claim hax

I got a caber kill once as a soldier (before the stats). No idea how it happened.

If you shoot or melee the caber and I die, and of course you live, you get the caber kill.

Kinda stupid/broken but it happens.

Found out that I'm 7 saps away from Sapoteur.

I'd like to thank Wakim and Walken Dead. You two ended up being the main stars of the footage I used for my class project. Even received a few laughs. I'll be happily uploading the video in a few days after I complete the revisions suggested by my instructors.

Now my curiosity is peaked. I imagine it features me getting killed eating a sandvich?

Woo-hoo, I'm famous!

Also, thanks to ragin_redneck, Wakim and Thunderchief for playing Market Gardener/Caber Jumper Fortress with me on Dustbowl late last night. To have only gotten one kill in ~40 minutes, it sure was fun.

Update time..

In other news, hattes looks like drugs according to paypal.

“The first two weeks that we did this we actually broke Paypal because they didn’t have – I don’t know what they’re worried about, maybe drug dealing – they’re, “like nothing generates cash to our userbase other than selling drugs”. We actually had to work something out with them and said “no … they’re making hats.”

nice, and mine just arrive today

Pics?

I think HlstatsX is not fair to Medics. Besides screwing your K/D ratio (I don't know if your KD ratio affects points) an uber is only worth 1 point, while assists are 2 or 3 points.

But healing is not rewarded at all except on extinguishes (which pyros also do).

So, you can play soldier and get a bunch of extra points due to "triple/rampage/etc" killing sprees, destroying buildings etc, but that doesn't count at all for the medic behind you because there's no "Medic assist spree".

I really take the whole stats thing with a grain of salt and it won't ruin my life as I know it when things aren't reflected correctly.
Or if that I am just not playing well at times. They're stats.... (there are lies, big lies and statistics)

It involves you beating up Tboon with a fish and me killing Walken with a caber.

I think I also used another clip from that night somewhere else but I can't remember if I did or not. I'll find out soon enough because I have to do some ADR.

Private is updating. Y'all wanna get a game going on the poor, neglected private server tonight? We can do worst class/taunt fortress/all melee/class revenge/crap weapons or whatever without worrying about borking stats.
